Privacy Policy


We would like to inform you here about the processing of your personal data within the scope of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), the Austrian Data Protection Act (DSG) and the Austrian Telecommunications Act (TKG).

We work together with MP Consulting GmbH, Austrian company number 244397h, Brixentaler Strasse 3, 6361 Hopfgarten im Brixental, Austria, in processing your data as joint controllers under Art. 26 GDPR. Please contact us at any time if you require further information. You can find our contact details at the end of this privacy policy.

1. Personal Data

Personal Data is all data which contains information about personal or factual matters, such as name, address, email address, telephone number, date of birth, age, gender, social security number, video recordings, photos, etc.

We collect, process and use your personal data only where this is necessary for the performance of the contract or we have a legal duty to do so or you have provided these to us voluntarily. We will obtain your consent for any form of data processing going beyond this. Where our legitimate interest in the processing of the data outweighs your interest in data protection, processing will also take place in certain circumstances without your consent.

We generally collect your data directly from you. In the course of concluding a contract, however, it may be the case that we obtain your data from third parties, such as for the purchase of vouchers, the ordering of other services on your behalf by third parties, bookings through travel agencies or booking platforms, etc.

Where you provide information during the booking process about your health, such as allergies, the requirement for barrier-free access, etc., we use these to adapt our service to your needs. The data about your health is used exclusively for the purposes of performing the contract and is not passed to third parties. It is a requirement for the processing of data about your health that you provide your express consent to this in the accommodation agreement. We adopt effective and proportionate data protection measures in order to guarantee the protection of data about your health.

We will use data provided to us especially for the purposes of performing the contract, entering into the contract, the fulfilment of statutory requirements, etc.

We ask that you inform us about any changes to your personal data.

We are sometimes required by law to provide personal data (e.g. tax regulations) or it may take place because of contractual provisions (e.g. provision of information to a contractual partner). Failure to provide personal data may lead to us being unable to enter into contract with you.

2. Your Rights

You have the right to information about your stored personal data and a right to correction, data transfer, opposition, restriction of processing and blocking or deletion of incorrect data or data which has been processed unlawfully. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

If you are of the opinion that our processing of your personal data violates the applicable data protection law, you have the opportunity to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority. In Austria, the Austrian Data Protection Authority (Datenschutzbehörde) is responsible for this. In Bavaria (Germany), complaints should be made to the Bavarian Data Protection Office (Bayerische Landesamt für Datenschutzaufsicht) (

3. Data security

We take appropriate organisational and technical measures to protect your personal data. In particular, these precautions relate to protection against unauthorised, unlawful or accidental access, loss, processing, use and manipulation.

Please note that we do not accept liability of any kind for the disclosure of information resulting from errors during the transfer of data which are not caused by us and/or unauthorised access by third parties.

4. Transfer of Data to Third Parties

12. Registration Data and Guest Cards

a) Registration data:
You are required under the Austrian Police Registration Act (Meldegesetz) to provide the information specified in sections 5 and 10 of that Act. This concerns the following data: Name, date of birth, gender, nationality, country of origin, address including postcode, and – for foreign guests – type, number, period of issue and issuing authority of a travel document as well as the dates of arrival and departure.

In accordance with the legal requirements placed on us under section 19 of the Police Registration Act Implementation Regulations (Meldegesetz-Durchführungs-Verordnung), we will enter this data into a guest register and retain it for a duration of 7 (seven) years unless it is to be processed for other reasons specified in this privacy policy. As we keep the guest register in electronic format, we pass the data to an IT contract data processor. The data is saved locally by them. Transfer to a third country does not take place.

Data in the categories “arrival”, “departure” and “country of origin” are passed to the local authority in which our accommodation business is located, in accordance with section 6 of the Austrian Tourism Statistics Regulations (Tourismus-Statistik-Verordnung). Aggregated data about the total number of overnight stays and the persons required to pay the tourism/city tax require to be transferred to the relevant tourism board to which we belong and/or the local authority This takes place on the basis of section 19 of the Tyrolean Tourism Tax Act (Aufenthaltsabgabegesetz).

Processing takes place on the basis of Art 6(1)(c) GDPR.

In addition, we pass on your postcode and your year of birth (in pseudonomised or anonymised format) to our local authority and our tourism board for statistical purposes for the preparation and analysis of statistics about origin and age by the tourist board. This transfer is based on Art 6(1)(e) (tasks in the public interest) and Art 6(1)(f) (legitimate interests) GDPR. You may object to this any time for reasons arising out of your particular situation (Art. 21(1) GDPR).

b) Guest cards:
You have the opportunity to make use of a guest card. The guest card grants you discounts and/or services with different business in the region (e.g. discounted entry). The guest card is valid for the duration of your stay with us.

The guest card will be created and issued by the accommodation provider only upon your request. It will be created using the guest card system employed by the tourism board and/or the accommodation provider either in the form of:

  • an electronically generated guest card;
  • a hand-made guest card; or
  • a copy of the guest registration form.


For both the electronically generated and hand-made guest cards, the following personal data will be processed from that collected upon check-in (see clause 1 above): First name, surname, date of birth, country of origin/post code and length of stay (arrival/departure).

If the guest card is created in the form of a “guest registration form”, this will contain the contents required under section 5 in conjunction with section 9 of the Austrian Police Registration Act (Meldegesetz) (also see clause 1.1 “registration data” above). In this event, no electronic processing will be carried out for the purposes of the guest card.

In using the guest card, the following additional personal data will be processed: data about the life cycle of the relevant card, use of services, bookings, transaction logs, reference to the registration data and accommodation provider.

The data is necessary, on the one hand, to confirm identity and, on the other hand, to determine the period of validity of the guest card when providing the relevant services and in order to carry out a financial reconciliation between the service providers, the tourism board and, in any event, the accommodation provider.

The processing of data for the purposes of the guest card is carried out on the basis of your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You may revoke your consent at any time.

The guest card system is operated by the local tourism board (“TVB”). The local accommodation provider and local businesses (“Service Providers”) are also involved. The data which is processed for the guest card is deleted after 40 (forty) months unless processing is being carried out for other legitimate purposes (e.g. regulatory reporting).

The local TVB obtains the data processed for the purposes of the guest card in order that it can carry out a financial reconciliation with the Service Providers and/or accommodation providers. The individual Service Providers who provide reduced services on the basis of the guest card also receive the data whenever you use the Service Providers’ guest card services. In order to make use of the discounts, you are required to show the guest card on which the data is contained to the Service Provider and thereby disclose this yourself. The business then checks whether this is (still) valid, usually by scanning the barcode on the guest card and transferring the barcode data to our IT contract data processor. By doing so, personal data, in particular data about your identity, is also transferred to the business (to check the identity and date of birth). If the guest card has been created in the form of the “guest registration form”, it will check the validity using the copy of the “guest registration form”.
